Hi all, I was recently asked to test a pattern for Corinne at Crochet4mybutterfly the pattern crocheted up very nicely, I acheived the gauge called for in the pattern. It was an easy pattern to follow and had very few mistakes or things I did not understand. Overall it is a very nicely written pattern, I would have been pleased if I had purchased the pattern. I am happy with the finished hat.
What I used to make it:
Yarn – yarn bee first love bulky #5
Hook I (5.5)
Brimmed Hat with Cables pattern by Corinne at Crochet4mybutterfly

Hi all hope you are having a great weekend!

I love it, I am going to be trying a hexipuff on it tonite. I need to catch up with Marilou she has made a whopping 197 puffs, want to see them? She sent me a pic, here it is

Hi all,I’ve decided to make a Tunisian Crochet Sampler blanket! I am using the instructions I found on this site there are videos and also written instructions. There are 64 different stitches on this website. I will be using Vanna’s Choice Yarn and a size J (5.5mm) Denise Interchangeable Crochet Hook. I am going to try and complete at least 2 squares a week, here are the first 2
Square 1 Tunisian Simple Stitch TSS
Yarn color 180 Cranberry
chain 27, work 20 rows includes foundation chain in row count,bindoff with slipstitch
Measures:7″x7″ blocked
Was quick and easy and I really like the finished square.
Completed on Wed Jun 12, 2013

20130619-164401.jpg
Square 2-Tunisian Full Stitch TFS
Yarn color 108 Dusty Blue
Chain 23 work 33 rows bindoff in Slipstitch following stitch pattern
Measures 7″x 7″ blocked
could have chained 25 to start and worked 32 rows
Completed Fri Jun 14, 2013
I tried to crochet somewhat loose, but the block had a lot of curl.
Had a little trouble with this one on the forward pass, I kept ending up with the wrong # of stitches so make sure and count at the end of the forward pass.
This took a lot more yarn than my first one. Not sure I’ll make more of this one.
the fabric feels a bit stiff.

Hi all I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend. Mine has been pretty good, I got a bit done around the house and have spent some time with hook and yarn and I’m pleased to say I have a completed project! Earlier in the week Elena from Beatriceryandesigns
posted about these cute Mary Jane SkimmersI went and checked them out and of course bought the pattern. I completed a pair this weekend for myself, I wear slippers at work (no shoes allowed in my room, crawling babies) only they look like real shoes. Since I am on carpet all day I chose not to make them non-skid or outdoor useable, but the pattern author has a nice article about this on her blog: http://hookcandy.blogspot.com/2011/10/making-crocheted-slippers-non-slip.html

Aren’t they cute! the pattern can be found here on Ravelry
I found the pattern to be easy to follow and well written. It cost a bit more than I usually will pay for a single item pattern, but I am glad I splurged.
I made the XS size with an I hook with Red Heart Love yarn in the color lettuce and Caron One Pound in the color espresso. I really enjoyed working with the Love yarn, even with 2 strands it was nice, the Caron on the other hand was difficult a bit too stiff and hard to work with 2 strands. They fit perfectly, I wear size 6 shoes. I already have plans for another pair, just need to decide on the yarn.
I will purchase from HookCandy again, I saw a couple of other patterns I thought I might like. Time to cook supper I am making Ham and Asparagus Fried Rice from this recipe

Ya’ll have a great week! Angel

Hi all, Happy Memorial Day! First I want say THANKYOU to all who serve/have served in the Military. My oldest son Nicholas is in the Army and I am very proud of him.
Are ya’ll having a good long weekend? I am, I took Friday off, so mine has been a bit longer. I spent the day going to yard sales with Crystal and Samantha and boy did I score! I found this lovely vintage cabinet for $10.00! I love it! It has already found a home in my house.

Saturday I spent the day at Tim’s helping the kids have a yard sale, mostly I just sat in the chair and loom knit in between collecting money and got sun burnt ! It was pretty cool all day. I was working on more Hexipuffs, they make a great take along project! These are all the puffs I made over the last week:

20130527-150942.jpg

I’ve been playing a bit with changing the colors in them, I think I like the pink/ gray one best. What do you think? I changed color each round except on rows 8,9 and 10, I think it turned out real pretty.

Yesterday I spent a lazy day loom knitting and watching movies. I was working on more Mason Jar Covers. I am going to be doing a class on them over in Loom Class http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LoomClass/ from June 3-15, you need to be a member to participate. They have been fun to work up. We had steak and potatoes cooked on the grill for supper, yum!

Today has been more loom knitting, movie watching and some pattern writing. It is cool and rainy here today so I don’t mind being inside. Rob and I made breakfast burritos this morning, yummy they are great for grab and go during the week cuz it is back to work tomorrow 😦 ya’ll have a great rest of the day! Angel
